Patent
University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign | Date: 2017-01-19

The invention provides a redox flow battery comprising a microporous or nanoporous size-exclusion membrane, wherein one cell of the battery contains a redox-active colloidal particle dispersed in a non-aqueous solvent. The redox flow battery provides enhanced ionic conductivity across the electrolyte separator and reduced redox-active species crossover, thereby improving the performance and enabling widespread utilization of the battery. Redox active colloidal particles (RACs) were prepared, analyzed, and were found to be highly effective redox species for use in redox flow batteries.

Described herein are flexible superhydrophobic films. Also described are methods for imparting superhydrophobicity to a variety of objects, for example objects having any shape or surface contours. For specific applications, the flexible superhydrophobic films include an adhesive backing layer, useful for attaching the film to objects. Some of the films described herein allow for selective control over the wettability of a surface by flexing the film, for example flexing the film results in a more wettable film, a less wettable film or a film having unchanged wettability. Flexible superhydrophobic films described herein also include films which maintain their superhydrophobicity when deformed into a concave or convex curvature.

Biomimetic grafts or implants coated with an osteogenic extracellular matrix and methods for production and use are described.


Patent
University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign | Date: 2017-03-22

Disclosed is a derivative of amphotericin B (AmB), denoted C2epiAmB, with an improved therapeutic index over amphotericin B, pharmaceutical compositions comprising the AmB derivative, methods of making the AmB derivative and the pharmaceutical composition, and their use in methods of inhibiting growth of a yeast or fungus and treating a yeast or fungal infection. C2epiAmB is an epimer of the parent compound. Specifically, C2epiAmB differs from the parent compound at the C2 stereogenic center on mycosamine. This difference in structure results in (i) retained capacity to bind ergosterol and inhibit growth of yeast, (ii) greatly reduced capacity to bind cholesterol, and (iii) essentially no toxicity to human cells.

Electronics that are capable of intimate, non-invasive integration with the soft, curvilinear surfaces of biological tissues offer important opportunities for diagnosing and treating disease and for improving brain/machine interfaces. This article describes a material strategy for a type of bio-interfaced system that relies on ultrathin electronics supported by bioresorbable substrates of silk fibroin. Mounting such devices on tissue and then allowing the silk to dissolve and resorb initiates a spontaneous, conformal wrapping process driven by capillary forces at the biotic/abiotic interface. Specialized mesh designs and ultrathin forms for the electronics ensure minimal stresses on the tissue and highly conformal coverage, even for complex curvilinear surfaces, as confirmed by experimental and theoretical studies. In vivo, neural mapping experiments on feline animal models illustrate one mode of use for this class of technology. These concepts provide new capabilities for implantable and surgical devices.
